COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Kilty Pleasure Scotch Ale exhibits a subtle aroma of vanilla and boasts a rich six-malt body tempered by heather and hops. Remember - when enjoying our latest seasonal draught in the nearest cozy pub, take your time.. because it’s cold outside.

On tap at South Philly Tap Room but labelled as Scratch 10 Scotch Ale and poured directly from a giant oak cask...awesome presentation. Reminded me a lot of swish with beer instead of water (e.g. you swish the liquid around a fresh scotch barrel to create booze) - sweet apple, toffee, lots of scotch, strong yet thin, mild carbonation and thin, sweet, slightly metallic.

Draft at Khyber. Pours a deep reddish brown with medium tan head. Aroma is toffee, caramel, some roast, dried fruit. Medium body. Toffee and dark fruit flavor, slight note of smoke but very subtle, roast. Smooth and sweet. Not bad

FROTHINGSLOSH (4843) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 24, 2013
Sampled on draft at the House of 1000 Beers this beer poured a very dark brown color with orange highlights and a medium sized creamy tan head that lingered and left decent lacing. The aroma was malty an sweetish with faint dark fruits, nut and wood. The flavor was malty and toasty with notes of maple, wood, honey, fig, apple and licorice. Medium length finish of maple, fig, wood and a touch of smoke. Moderately full bodied. Solid.

ryanscourt (713) - Latrobe, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 25, 2013
Carmael toasty creamy bready. Sweet with burnt toast flavors. Fairly heavy on the palate. Alcohol is well hidden. Not my favorite style but this one is ok, rich and flavorful.

EithCubes (4756) - New Jersey, USA - FEB 22, 2013
Bomber. Big floral aroma (heather) with vanilla, toffee, chocolate, woody hops. Dark, nearly opaque brown body with a little scarlet peaking out, supports a dense but short light brown head. Sweet fruity taste tempered by light-medium bitterness, some mineral and yeast play, mild smoke. Nice earthy undertones and heavily floral, caramel; there seems to be good malt depth without heavily reliance on the crystal family, and although the roast is muted I know it’s there. Very light woodiness and mild herbal hop contributions, with a bit of spice, but this one’s malt-focused, as it should be. Medium body, alcohol’s about where it should be, perhaps a bit hidden.. A pleasure.

Disabledbobcat (5) - - JAN 31, 2013 does not count
Pours very dark brown almost black, with a very nice tan head. The smell is malty with some earthy hops, but much stronger of malts. The flavor was a little disappointing. It lacks a certain punch that most wee heavies have. I think they try to use caramel malt in place of kettle caramelization. Overall it is a decent beer but it is not a good scotch ale.

jsmerig (1208) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 2, 2012
Pours a cloudy brown with a thick frothy head. Aroma of scotch whiskey and dark roasted malt. A bit of smoky overtones as well. Taste is dry smokey and peppery with a bit if residual sweetness. Crisp in the finish. A true scotch (as in barrel aged) beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
